KABUL, Afghanistan -- A suicide bomber struck an Afghan intelligence office in the country’s south Saturday, killing six people, including a member of the NATO force in the country, Afghan and international security officials said.
The attacker approached the intelligence office either on foot or on a motorcycle, according to contradictory accounts by local officials. A civilian employee of the U.S.-led international force was among the dead.
A military official from the international force confirmed that one of its service members and a civilian employee had been killed but declined to provide their identities.
A second service member died in a bombing in the south, the NATO force announced in a statement.
The attacks in Kandahar province are meant to intimidate the Afghan forces who are set to take over security as the Americans prepare to leave the country in 2014.
